Analyst, Trading


The start of my career here at Barclays has been very involved, very hands on with a number of projects that I’ve been working on.

One of the things that my line manager has been able to help me with is actually networking with individuals both internally and externally in the firm, so that I have more business awareness of how things are shaping up in the medium and longer term. It really allows employees to feed back their thoughts and ideas around ways in which the business could be improved or the experience of individuals of young career starters can actually excel within the bank. 

In terms of the support, there’s been workshops on how to give presentations, how to communicate effectively, how to work through problems in a logical and effective manner and those workshops initiatives have definitely helped me in shaping my career and also my ability to work effectively with others around the firm.
